Vedic Pearls - Sri Nava Moti



Bona fide natural pearl x-ray certificate
Perfect round natural pearl

In ancient Oriental and European histories we know that the "Pearl" they referred to was 100% natural pearl, because cultured-pearls were not known until recently. But at the present time practically everyone (except a learned gemologist) now thinks that the hollow "cultured pearl" pearl-imitations are the real thing. This is mass ignorance, and should be addressed by all cultured persons who care about the true nature of things.

Natural pearls are 100% 'pearl' or nacre. It is thought that natural pearls form under  a set of accidental conditions when a microscopic intruder or grain of sand enters an oyster (mollusk) and settles inside the shell. The oyster, being irritated by the intruder, secretes the pearl substance called nacre to cover the irritant. This process is repeated for many years, thus producing a real pearl which may (or may not) be found by man. For a natural pearl to form with a nice round or oval shape, and be free of any flaws, is actually a real-life "miracle."  The odds of a perfect natural pearl are 1 in a million. 

Deity: Sri Chandra • mounted in gold • Origin: Bahrain • Value: VERY RARE • Vidhi: Monday evening mantra japa - Om som somaya namah (11 times)




Pictured above is a very rare sight, an "Ichadhari" Naga Mani or Cobra Pearl. PLEASE NOTE: The author, Richard Shaw Brown, has seen and held this above pictured Sri Naga Mani, and, YES, it does glow in the dark. It belongs to a wealthy Sri Lankan Family.

"Pearls from the cobra's hood are perfectly round, like fish pearls, and they radiate a natural effulgence. By repeated washing, a snake pearl becomes as lustrous as a polished sword blade. Anyone possessing such a naga-mani attains piety, rare good fortune, and eventually becomes illustrious as a leader of men, complete with a great collection of all precious gems."

"Upon acquiring such a snake pearl, the owner should have the rite of installation performed by a priest who is learned in religious formalities. After hearing from the owner how the pearl was obtained and conducting the benedictory ritual, the priest should formally install the jewel inside the owner's house. On such an auspicious occasion, the sky becomes filled with dark and heavy rain clouds, thunder, and flashing lightning, such as exhibited at the time of universal dissolution. A man in possession of such a snake pearl will never be troubled by snakes, demonic beings, diseases, or disturbances in any form."---Sri Suta Goswami - Sri Garuda Puranam: 69

NOTE: Except for Natural Oyster Pearl, we do not sell the examples below due to inability to verify scientific identity, and also due to rarity. These are for exhibit only

NATURAL OYSTER PEARL (Chandra Mani)

Spirit: Chandramani - Moon's gem. Improves good luck, business, social life, charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace of mind, calmness, and balanced emotions. Oyster pearl is the ONLY "Planetary pearl" being the bona fide "gem" for the Moon. Acts like the Moon. IMPORTANT NOTE: Cultured (imitation) Pearls are NOT real pearls, because the inside is NOT pearl at all.

Origin: Persian Gulf

SNAKE HEAD PEARL (Naga Mani)

Spirit: Generally improves good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. The "Ichadhari" Nagamani, which comes from the 100 year old King Cobra hood and glows in the dark, has been seen by us as shown before (above).

Origin: S.E. Asia (Ular Kembang Seribu Snake)

BOAR HEAD PEARL (Varaha Mani)

Spirit: Related to the Varaha-avatar of Lord Vishnu. This pearl is heavy, like the Earth, and the Boar Incarnation lifted the Earth with His tusks, so this talisman is for divine strength. Generally improves good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures.

Origin: S.E. Asia (Example from King Wild Boar head)

ELEPHANT HEAD PEARL (Gaja Mani)

Spirit: Related to Lord Ganesh, the remover of obstructions. Also related to Gajendra, the great elephant devotee who was saved by the Lord. Generally improves good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. Elephant is the auspicious sign of greatness. We know of one family in Africa who possess a Gaja Mani taken from inside the tusk of a white elephant (price is prohibitive)

Origin: S.E. Asia

ANCIENT FISH HEAD PEARL (Matsya Mani)

Spirit: Related to the Matsya Avatara of Lord Vishnu. Generally causes things to grow huge, and improves good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. Ideally this talisman pearl should remind one of God Matsya Avatar, as well as the earthly predicament.

Origin: S.E. Asia (Found in a prehistoric underwater cave)

BAMBOO STEM PEARL (Venu Mani)

Spirit: Like a ball of petrified wood, these generally improve good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. It is said in Scriptures that Bamboo Pearls only form in Bamboo that grows in a pious area where people are religious. Thus they are considered most rare and blessed.

Origin: S.E. Asia (Puter Giling Bamboo Stem)

TREE TRUNK PEARL (Vriksha Mani) --- This example is from a Banana Tree (Maucha Mani)

Spirit: Generally believed to improve good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. The real greatness of a tree is it's TOLERANCE! Rain or shine, no complaints. And even if someone is cutting the trees body, far from complain, the tree offers the offender shade and even fruits. In this way TREES are a guru, even for saints.

Origin: S.E. Asia

CLOUD PEARL (Mega Mani)

Spirit: These fall down from the sky after having formed somehow in the clouds. It's said these rarely reach this mortal world as they are gathered by the Cosmic Hierarchy, the Devas; so if the Devas are so eager then it's safe to say these improve good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. Questions are: Where to get one? AND How to prove it? After all, there is no known method of identifying Sky Pearls.

Origin: S.E. Asia

CONCH SHELL PEARL (Shanka Mani)

Spirit: Generally improves good luck, business, social standing, personal charisma, attractiveness, intuition, all-around healing, sexual strength, and peace with envious creatures. The Conch Shell, especially the Turbinella Pyrum, are said to be sacred to Lakshmidevi, the Goddess of Wealth. So possession of such a Conch Pearls would provide vast riches. Especially if it's a pearl from a Valampuri Dakshinvarti Lakshmi Conch which open on the right side, just opposite of the normal shell. We have never heard of a Lakshmi Conch Pearl in anyone's possession, but we feel certain there are some in existence.

Origin: Caribbean



Snake and other pearls and fossils are acquired mostly in the Indonesian-Malaysian areas. They are discovered in caves, jungles, sacred places, and construction sites where the natives dig and find fossilized remains of snakes, animals, plants, trees, etc., that contain the PEARLS. Chemistry testing on some samples which we conducted with the head of the GIA Research Lab in Bangkok, showed them to be mostly silica, just like petrified wood. But they were not able to be proved scientifically because there is no existing standard.

Reference to these special pearls is given in Sri Garuda Puranam. Click here for this information.
